Find in reply hereto that in the opinion of the Attorney General the half-subsidy is justly to be repaid to the merchants, and that according to the calculation of the Customs Farmers the amount to be repaid on this head is 7,760l. for the year before the King's return.

But wee are loathe to apprehend when the 2 howses gave this duty of tunnage and poundage to the King whether they intended it should be loaded with this debt which ought to have bin repaid by those that received the customes of those times. This your lordships will advise upon, for wee cannot thinke fit to cast the losse upon the merchant."Early Entry Book X. pp. 210–3.
